Forget the return of ‘Community’. Forget the long-awaited season premiere of ‘Mad Men’. They can’t be my favorite shows anymore, because neither one features a bear accidentally shrinking Zdeno Chara’s sweater. Well, ‘Community’ might, we’ve still got a few episodes to go.
Behold ‘Bear & The Gang’, an 80s-style sitcom in the style of Minnesota Matters that replaces clips of Urkel dribbling with Patrice Bergeron playing Red Hands with a fully-grown f**king black bear.
The details, from Puck Daddy:
The Boston Bruins on Monday debuted Bruins Digital Entertainment Network (yep, Bruins DEN) that seeks to package all of their digital and social content together. Part of that network: The Bruins new official Mobile App via AT&T, which is available for free on iTunes, Android Market/Google Play and Blackberry App World.
Fans who download that app get an exclusive look at the Bear’s new starring role: “The Bear and the Gang,” a series of shorts in the style of a 1980s sitcom that feature Brad Marchand and other Bruins players; fist-pumping TD Garden legend Rene Rancourt; and, of course, beloved paragon on impartial commentating, Jack Edwards of NESN.
Other highlights include Adam McQuaid drying his hair with the worst little hotel hair dryer ever, Shawn Thornton not being able to keep a straight face for long enough to produce 7 seconds of useable footage and Cam Neely messing with his junk before someone walks in on him.
So yeah, pretty excited for this. Also, I’m starting a petition to get Rene Rancourt onto an episode of ‘Mad Men’.
